Plant of the Month: Poinsettia

Our December Plant of the Month is a Christmas classic, the poinsettia. These beautiful plants are a stunning pop of colour this time of year and a beautiful addition to a holiday table or display. We will have beautiful poinsettias in various sizes available for you this season.

Education Corner: How to care for your Poinsettia

Poinsettias are stunning and vibrant plants. But caring for them can sometimes be a bit tricky. This Christmas, our designers are sharing their top three tips to make your poinsettia last all through the holiday season.
 
Keeping your poinsettia in a well-lit space is key for it to thrive. Make sure that it has as much in-direct sunlight as possible.
 
Like most plants, temperatures definitely play a factor in keeping your poinsettia healthy as long as possible. Keeping it in a space that is room temperature (or roughly 20 degrees Celsius) is ideal.
 
Water your poinsettia in moderation. You don’t want to over-water your poinsettia. You are able to thoroughly soak the soil when watering, but make sure to not let water gather in the saucer. Make sure to let the soil dry out between watering.

How to Store your Bulbs for the Winter Months

To guarantee that your bulbs make it through the winter, its important to make sure they’re stored correctly. We’ve consulted our expert designers, and compiled a list of tips and tricks to make sure that your bulbs make it to the spring.

  1. To prepare for storage, it’s important to let the bulbs and surrounding soil dry, in a sheltered, frost-free place until the soil comes off the roots and leaves them clean. Making sure that the bulb has dried thoroughly before storing is key.
  2. It is important to make sure that your bulbs are stored somewhere safe, and away from frost or any pesky rodents.
  3. When storing, put a layer of sand, peat moss or even newspaper, on the bottom of the container you are using. Then you can add a layer of your bulbs, however, make sure not to let them touch each other. You can then add a second layer or dry material and continue this process until your container is full or all your bulbs have been stored.
Once you’ve completed this process, make sure to store your container in a safe and memorable place for you to access come the spring.
